Considered a crab for its size, but definitely suitable for the kitchen and the lunch box. Intense flavors and incredibly sweet. Excellent pickling and wonderful fresh eating. Small round pinkish-striped fruit ripens in mid-September in central Maine. Looks similar to Chestnut, but tends to be more pink. One year at the Common Ground Fair, Whitney beat out Cox’s Orange Pippin and Chestnut in our taste test—quite a feat! Eat it or can it up quickly because it doesn’t keep long.
Hardy vigorous heavy-bearing tree. Highly recommended. Blooms pink and white, early-midseason. Z3. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
